The Our Kids review of Sylvan Learning Oakville

 

Sylvan Learning Centres were founded in 1979, and the company has grown to include locations throughout North America. Sylvan’s reputation has grown as well, principally through the visibility of the locations and their association with effective academic tutoring. Still, there is more to Sylvan than perhaps most people may know, and the seasonal camps and programs are included in that. Yes, the focus can look somewhat academic at first glance—engineering, STEM, robotics, coding—though the feel of the camps is less formal, less academic, and more geared to gather children around topics and activities that they are passionate about, in addition to having fun. They will learn a lot, no doubt, though often the empowerment that the camps can bring is, for many families and kids, their principal value, and the thing that keeps them coming back year after year.


The 2020 Experience at Sylvan Learning Oakville

As a private supplemental education service, Sylvan Learning of Oakville was required by law to temporarily close our Learning Centre, along with all non-essential businesses, in mid-March 2020. We moved quickly to offer our tutoring, enrichment, test prep and STEM programs online, and have been delivering the same quality programs with our Local, Live, Trained Instructors in 1:1 online sessions since the end of March. We have also provided advice and free resources to families through SylvanNation.com, and through our Free Consultations with our Directors.

As a local, small business, we are committed to providing the quality services needed by our Oakville families in a safe environment. We are offering discounts for essential workers and have created special discounts for our current and new families. When we are able to re-open our physical centre, we will ensure we follow all safety requirements.

While we will not be offering our regular STEM Day Camps this summer, we have put together a series of affordable Academic Camps that ensure kids continue to learn AND experience the benefits of connecting and collaborating with other students at their level.

These are challenging times for everyone, our kids included. As teachers, parents, and small business people, we understand and we care. We're here to help!

Stories


Math at Sylvan

Our daughter has been with Sylvan for 3 months in the Math Edge program and we've seen a significant improvement in both her skills and confidence. I would definitely recommend Sylvan to anyone whose child needs the extra push.

...



Summer at Sylvan

We decided to put our son in a few programs over the summer time to make sure he has a good start to the new school year come September. He has improved on his reading and Math and he feels more confident going into grade one. Friendly educators and flexible if there has to be a schedule change. Highly recommended.

The staff at the Sylvan Learning Centre in Oakville are truly the best of the best! Centre Director’s Amy and Tara are knowledgeable, hard-working and passionate educators that always go the extra mile to ensure every student is well cared for and every family’s individual needs are met. Along with the rest of the teaching staff, they have created a positive learning environment where students of all ages are able to develop and grow more confident with each session, and experience that learning can be fun firsthand.

Caring Staff by Asti T.

Our child greatly enjoys going to Sylvan-Oakville. Their staff is genuinely caring and are determined to help kids with their academics. We've seen improvement in our child's performance at school and also in the level of confidence when confronted with more challenging tasks. It's a fun and welcoming environment to learn in and we highly recommend Sylvan for anyone looking for a tutoring program.

Remarkable results by Jan B.

Sylvan has changed our lives - twice now! They worked very hard to customize a program for our daughter that is "outside the box" and would provide us with significant results in a short period of time. The results are remarkable - passion for learning is back and there is no longer frustration in our house! A quote from Teigan: "I really enjoy it a lot, it's fun to be there and I am always looking forward to going". Thank you to the Sylvan Oakville team!
